Comment 1 Marek Polacek 2017-08-02 08:48:07 EDT
The instructions also say: "Please, mind, that in CentOS 6 repositories there is only toolchain and perftools packages available, but there are not all eclipse packages built. For Eclipse on CentOS 6, please, use the Copr builds." -- I hope that resolves your problem.
